A wine with smoke and berry character, and ultra-polished tannins. Full body, fine tannins and a fresh finish. Very tannic. Should soften by 2019.
Wine Spectator, March 2014
Features an iron spine that keeps the plum sauce, blackberry and currant fruit in check, with flickers of tobacco and charcoal on the finish. Best from 2015 through 2021. — JM
